Good morning,

I sure wish some of the rain Jeri and Joy have gotten would make it's way up north here to my area in southern Ontario. IT is going to be another hot and humid day with no sign of rain anywhere.

I am taking my mother out for the day and hopefully it will get me out of the funk I am starting to feel with being curtailed on my time outdoors due to the scorching temperatures.

Anne, I am so sorry to here of your DS and DDL having to go through such heartache. I will say prayers for them that they will have success in conceiving soon.

Gotta run and get ready to go so wishing everyone a fabulous day of healthy living.

Good Morning All! Pleased to wake this morning and see that we've gotten over an inch of rain last night. Will do the yard good and save me a lot of work. No garden this morning, still wet out there and still getting a soft rain. CAT, 76 would be considered a relief from the heat here. Humidity is high too.

All is well here. Plan on working in house this morning and grocery shopping this afternoon. A yoga morning. Yoga makes my body feel great! Enjoy your day everyone. Life is good.

Good morning! It's a stormy morning, and my poor dogs just didn't want to go outside to do their business. The lightning and thunder has subsided for now, so hopefully they'll get out there again. I can't say that I blame them for not wanting to go outside on a morning like this!!

Anne, fertility issues are so hard for a couple. My daughter and son-in-law went through it last year, and now they have a gorgeous 6 month old baby boy. They are going to do it again soon. They are both in their late 30s, and the clock is ticking.

Caz, enjoy the festival :-)

Anne, that is tragic about the IF. Hopefully this 'free' one will be the one.
It is very warm here - for here that is. All of 76.
I went bowling today and didn't do well at all as the bowling alley is not air conditioned.
That brown cow looks like it has an attitude.

A beautiful day today. I did 1000 yds in the pool, and then a bunch of boxing. I got to work, and the cows looked so pretty! Of course, I had to stop and take a pic.

Hello Ladies,

today I stepped out and it is so hot that I can't enjoy being outdoors right now. I think I will go do some mall walking or I will go crazy just being inside the house again.
I am feeling very antsy this week, probably with the anticipation of my daughters MRI on Friday night. The wait for the results can't come soon enough.

Every time I think about what the worst outcome could be, I go into panic mode and I hate that feeling because it is not necessary.
I have to admit, I have always seen the glass as half empty and not half full but I am working on being more positive. I know everything will be okay, I can just feel it in my bones.

I am sending everyone good wishes for a day filled with lost of happiness and fun.
Hope it isn't too hot where you are and you can get out and enjoy the glorious summer weather. I am thinking it will be cooler later in the day so I will get out then for my regular walking routine.

Have a good one ladies.

Good Morning All, Good day yesterday morning in the yard and hope to get mulch down this morning in the area I got weeded.
Susan, I'm facing that surgery at some point; not dreading it as I've heard nothing but good things about it and have an excellent ophthalmologist. I've lost some vision with the health issues of this past year and he's confident I will regain some of it when it's time for the surgery; not yet. For now my prescription glasses are working well but except for computer time I wear them all the time now as you may or may not have noticed by my pictures.
CAT, easy does it on the move; one step at a time. I really love the new home!
ANNE, My DD in MD went through multiple procedures and it took awhile but has two wonderful kids in their teens now. Patience for all. Hugs.
CAZ, Can't tell you how much it pleases me to hear how quickly you are moving back to your active lifestyle! You are an inspiration!!
Seize the day everyone!

Joy glad you could finally get out and enjoy your garden hun. Raining here today, most welcome I can tell you. The garden needs it even though I left the sprinkler on the night before last
Patti that is good of you to help a friend out.
Susan I am with you about dreading eye surgery- I would have my brain op done all over again rather than face that, But we only have one pair of eyes!! Take care of your beautifully peepers.
I don't think I would have laughed about not being told about the cancelled appointment- but thn over here my doctors don't leave message they call back. They even phone a day before an appt to make sure you can attend and haven't forgotten!!
Cat good luck with the viewings! Like Anne I'm a born organiser and loved moving, We had open house so didn't have to be there for the viewings, the estate agent saw to it all and it was a great success. We got SEVEN offers at least 5000 above the asking price!.
The only down side was having to keep on to our solicitor to keep things moving, I recall Pete asking her what she was being paid for as we were doing most of the leg work for her emoticon
Anne it was better last night wasn't it?! Pete wasn't wriggling so much so I slept though to 6.30!!! Sorry to hear about the death in the family and DS and DIL's struggle for a baby. Hope it happens for them soon, is it on the NHS? The postcode lottery for IVF is quite random so I'm told. Best of luck to them and I'm sure they welcome your support and all you do for them emoticon

Well, like I said rain, so sticking to getting the chores done today and a proper Full Body workout on the multi gym. I feel I'm ready!

Happy hump day ladies emoticon

Cat I really enjoy moving house I love the organising planning and packing, but not the selling and showing people round my home and the waiting and legal side to inalienable completion. It is hard work lots of calorie burning.
Much cooler last night so I slept well till 5 the heat has made nights very uncomfortable. Do gets back late afternoon from attending his aunts funeral. DS and DIL have had a disappointing day yesterday undergoing IVF with a donor egg and out of 6 eggs 5 nothing and 1 not safe so clinic has said they can have another attempt with new donor egg for free. Mentally and physically exhausting for them. I support from a distance which is hard.

Hi all. Another busy day for me with running around and packing.
The for sale sign went up this afternoon. We are ready for the place to show, or rather as ready as we can be. I have to remember that we are moving so people won't expect our house to be perfectly 'groomed'. Besides, when then get in and see the view of the water and mountain they will not even look at the dust!

Good morning Ladies,

I was up early to go to an eye appointment but when I got there, I found out it was cancelled. They did call and leave a message but not on my phone. They accidentally called a different patient. Had a good laugh over that. It has been rebooked for Friday and thank goodness that was a clear scheduled day for me. Have to stay on top of the cataracts to be sure they are not getting worse.
I am not looking forward to that surgery when it is needed although my mom and everyone tells me it's nothing to have done.

It is another hot day here and I am just waiting to here from my mother to see if she wants me togo in to her place today since am free now.
I am sending out best wishes to all for a great day with lots of healthy living in it.

I spent yesterday morning in the yard and was rewarded by a little over an inch of rain after! Going back out this morning and pull weeds while the ground is still soft.

I just returned from a 7.5 MILE power walk done at 4.25 MPH. I am happy wit that time as I took a different route this time.
I was well equipped with water and it was slightly challenging in the end but I feel great right now that I just had a cool shower. I saw lots of people on my route playing Pokemon Go and was sure hoping that none of those little critters could be seen floating around me LOL..

My grandson was out last night walking with his friends until 2:30 in the morning. I finally texted him to remind him that he had to be at work for 10:00 am. He is staying in tonight as he is working a 12 hour shift tomorrow.

Hope everyone is having a great evening. It is hot here and humidity is rather high at 83% but I still findit pleasant enough to enjoy the outdoors.

Yesterday was very pleasant at the friends house. Eight people and we sat in a beautiful wooded area and ate and laughed and just have a very pleasant time.
Today has been packing and cleaning and making calls arranging for things to happen.
Found out the builders is NOT including the window screens in the new house. There's one on the sliding door but none on the windows and we just assumed they would be installed prior to possession. NOT! Who ever heard of such a thing?

Caz, you are just as busy outside.
Joy, I am sorry you are not up to your own standards! But I but you can still spin most people half your age.
Susan, enjoy the respite from the heat with that rain.

Today I awoke to the most glorious site RAIN! I wish it rained all day but by noon the sun was out and once again it was like a steam bath outside. While I like this hot weather, I have been watching out for all the wildlife and birds that are suffering from it. I have been placing bowls of water outside at night time and refilling the birdbath 2 and 3 times a a day.

I started my day doing a power walking video and am going to get out side after dinner and do a real power walk on the canal path I love to travel.

I saw my hygienist today to get my teeth cleaned and checked and now I am back to get change and get out for my walk. Will be taking plenty of water as it is still 86F out there with the humidity at 90% The heat isn't as bad as the humidity. I am thinking of taking a swim in the canal along the way so it will cool me down and give me a little change in the fitness routine. Putting a bathing suit on under my clothes.

Sending best wishes out to all for a fabulous evening.

Good morning!! OMG, I think I'm too old for weekend trips. I had an early morning swim on the schedule, but that didn't happen. I slept until 6:00! It's going to be super hot again today. I'm going into zombie mode now. I look like I'm moving, but really, I am completely lacking in brain power. Moving only by reflex and instincts. Don't throw anything complicated at me. Haha.

Good Morning All,
Slow starting this morning, feeling yesterday's yoga workout in my shoulders and arms (modified push-ups too). Having coffee now and plan to get out for a little while in the yard this morning and do a "poop patrol". Since I haven't been walking Sugar, I have to keep up with that. Usually it's taken care as I pick up daily on our walks. Thankful that she a Xena have a big yard for these times when I'm more housebound. Should be out there by 8:30.
Thank you all for the kind responses on my blog; lots of early risers among my friends -- and early time zones! emoticon

We did not get the storms predicted last night so hoses need to be hooked up too. This morning they have been predicting rain, again, for the next 7 days. I can hope but they have no credibility for Lexington anymore. Something in the topography steers it elsewhere.

Make it a great day everyone! Stay safe. Where there's a will there's a way! Smiles.

Anne lovely way to spend the day, perfect balance, We had lunch in the garden, glorious to sit and enjoy the fresh air in peace and quiet,
Joy shame you could not attend the Jazz, but in that heat?! wise lady.
Susan hope you all enjoyed the BBQ
Jeri welcome home, glad you're feeling more confident on your bike.

Well,I managed to get most of the dead wood/leaves and debris from that Yukka yesterday,took 2 hours, some leaves would not come away easily so assume there is still life in them ( will have another check on them in a couple of months to keep on top of it now) nearly lost my glassed several times among the leaves LOL.
But it's done, just a few bushes to trim and reshape now and Pete's promised to get that done for me...hopefully by Wednesday when the recycling guys come. All in all I now have the council's large brown bin full plus SIX canvas sacks for them. I think I shall have flutter my eyelashes. Actually they,Barry and Mick, are pretty amenable guys, sure they'll take it all for me.

Beach walk this morning and a workout then enjoying this weather while it lasts emoticon

Checking in. I'm back from the trip. Lots of fun!! We biked 15 miles of trails yesterday, with lots of elevation changes. I'll never being completely confident on a bicycle, but I realized yesterday that I have no reason to doubt my bike skills. I was zipping down hills, around curves, and across rutted out trails, and avoiding fallen limbs and giant rocks like someone who has been riding trails forever! We really had a good time. Our cottage was very plain, but it was out in the woods, and it was peaceful. I blogged. But I'm tired, and I need to unpack. I'll catch up on everyone tomorrow.

Good afternoon I just got back a little while ago from walking the mall. I planted some seeds and then came in to cool down. It is a hot one out today.

Happy Sunday Ladies,
this morning it is cloudy so it doesn't feel as hot right now. I am hoping it stays this way as we are having a barbecue with my aunt, uncle, son Ryan and granddaughter Elise.

Next week Elise is moving back to her moms which is up in Listowel after living here with my son for the past 4 years. Last summer she met a boy and they have been a couple since then. He lives in London and goes to school in Stratford and my granddaughter has decided to move back because of him. I feel badly for my son however with all that is coming up with the transplant it is just as well. She is only 16 and had to endure his 2 heart attacks, hospitalization and his heart surgery so she will be better off with her mother and other family as Ryan goes through everything. Having her here today may be the last time we see her for a while although being a teenager, she doesn't spend a great deal of time with us lately anyway.

Don't know what is up with my weight but it seems to be up a bit. I have been staying within my calories and continuing with my fitness yet I have put on a couple of pounds.
I need to reassess what I am eating as opposed to how much. I think I have been getting too much fat in my diet and need to cut back on it.

I have been allowing for ice cream every night for dessert but only a cup. Perhaps I better cut back on it and just allow it once ina while. I have also allowed for some wine this summer from time to time but I have decided that the wine will be cut out now until after the transplant. Hubby bought a small bottle for today but I have removed it from the fridge and put it away. Hubby doesn't drink wine so it can wait and be used at Christmas time. emoticon

Well, I guess I better move myself or my butt might stick to this chair this morning. I did get a good night sleep after only 4 hours the night before but I still feel a bit tired.

Last night I started leaving a bowl of water out in the driveway for any animals out there that need a drink Will refill it twice dasily with fresh water. It is so dry here it wouldn't take much to start a fire. The grass feels likes shards of glass as it breaks under your feet when you walk. I refuse to waste the water on the grass plus it is too costly to be using for lawns.

Verna, I love the car story.

Have an awesomely great day today everyone and hope it's filled with healthy living.

Good Morning All! Quite a few here already this morning! Nice to "see" you! Everyone trying to beat the heat. I've already decided to skip Jazz at the winery today. Temps are going to be in the mid 90's and the humidity is high already. Still no rain, at least in my neighborhood. All kinds predicted and it just goes around us or hops over us. Yard really needs it. Beds are still doing OK; I need to water the container plants. Enjoy your Sunday. Stay Safe.

Looks like Caz has covered everything emoticon Yesterday was a bit too much so after my walk/run parkrun I was fit for very little. Admire everyones activity. I was up and did go out for a slow 3mile run this morning so beat the heat. Had breakfast in the garden and although there are some bushes I could fight to get under control the sun loungers are out! DH aunt died last week so he if flying home tomorrow for funeral on Tue and back on Wed so just finishing arrangements it is 2 connecting flights with no real choice of times. I will be working so just a couple of evenings alone which i will quite enjoy. Have a good day all

HI Girls
I thought I posted yesterday but it looks like I missed.
Good to see you all so active (as always).

Susan glad to hear such positive news
Joy you and Cat you are so right about this heat, loving it but it's hard work.
Joy great selfie!
Verna.......... emoticon WAY TOO close to reality emoticon

Hottest day so far yesterday here 98!! and sticky with it.

Spent most of yesterday morning gardening; mowed all the lawns and edged them and then spent about 2 hours pulling off all the dead leaves from a huge Yukka type plant in the front garden, I've been putting off doing it as I tried before and they would not pull away easily and I tried cutting some out but that made it look even more untidy.
Filled two large canvas bags!!!
After 2 hours I'd had it in the heat- intend finishing it once and for all after brekkie before the temperature rises. And I feel it safe to do a gentle UB workout after. Very light weights. I reckon as I've been hauling the garden waste bags and shopping around I can safely do it.

Hi everyone. Hope all is well at your end I found this in my e-mail a few minutes ago and thought I would share it with you:

If My Body Were a Car!

This is funny but scary - how true it is !!!

If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull...
But that's not the worst of it.

My headlights are out of focus,
And it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it.

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter,
Either My Radiator Leaks or My Exhaust Backfires!

Have a wonderful day everyone LOL Joy I love that pic of you, you look so healthy.

Thanks CAT. I did have a nice afternoon and actually got in a decent amount of activity. Only brief periods of going out in the heat and drinking more water than usual. My body will be in transition for awhile, no guarantee it will ever be 100% but I'll sure give it my best shot. Not the predictable body I was used to. But, Life is good.

Hi all.
Joy, take it easy until you feel 100%.
Verna, I wish I was as efficient as you think!! This house goes on the market Tuesday. The new house won't close until about 8-15.
My help did not show, answer his phone, or call. I am livid. There are so few people to help do this type of manual work that I am having difficulties finding someone else.
Susan, glad you had a good anniversary evening. And congratulations to you on 39 years.
Everyone, stay cool.

Hi Ladies, just taking a break for a moment from al the housework. It is too hot to go outdoors for but a few minutes. I think this is the hottest day so far.
I keep refilling the bird bath as it heats up so quickly and the poor birds are loving taking baths and getting fresh water from it. I feel so sorry for the animals that need water and have to hunt for it.

Getting lots of housework done so incorporating fitness into it with doing some stretched and lunges etc.
Sending everyone best wishes for a great day and hope it is a healthy one.

Good morning everyone. I hope all you gals that are living in the Heat Belt are taking care not to be outside for long periods of time. I think those are wasted words on our Energizer Bunnies, Jerri and Susan though. LOL

Cat, sounds like the packing/moving is coming along nicely and good to hear someone is coming to help. When you decide to do something you mean business. It's only a few days since you bought your new home and already you are moving in. I assume your present home has been sold as well. I'm thinking August 1 must be possession day.

Jerri, enjoy those caves. It should be cool in them.

Joy you have the same idea as I do. Indoors for me during the hottest part of the day anyway. Our heat can't compare to your's though. I hope your feeling that "something is off" is simply a message from your body saying "Cool it a little bit --Relax!!"

Mayie, I like your attitude. No use beating ourselves up if we don't get as much done as we would like, as long as we are doing our best and I certainly believe we are doing just that.

Patti, that is a good idea to walk in the Mall. I have never done that ---- cause we have no indoor malls in my nearest town!!

Susan, all your news is good. May it continue for a long time!!

The morning is slipping by fast and I need to get moving. Have a great weekend everyone.

Good Morning All! Have a wonderful weekend. Above all, listen to your bodies; this heat can do strange things. It will be a mostly indoor day for me. Venturing out in small spurts. Just feeling something is "off". Hmmmm . . Possibly just needing recovery time from an active week. I can do that. Stay well everyone!

Good evening Ladies,

I had an awesome day yesterday celebrating my 39th anniversary of marriage and I thank everyone for the good wishes.

We got the news that my daughter's bone scan looks good but the official results wont be in until next week. She goes for the MRI next Friday evening at 8:00 pm and this was the soonest they could get her in with it being urgent. Our healthy system is not the best but I am glad the wait won't be months.

It has been very hot and humid here today and we are under a heat warning that is to continue throughout the weekend.

In spite of it, I went out for a power walk today and managed 7.5 MILES. I was pretty hot when I got home and immediately got into a cool shower then made it a cold shower. The steam was still coming off my body for 20 minutes afterward so I know I was over heated.
I had lots of water with me and even had a bottle that I filled up from the canal to put on me as I walked when I got feeling too hot. I even stopped to wade in the canal for a couple of minutes before making the last third of my walk, I felt quite invigorated afterward and I even took Tyson out after dinner but we went to the park where we went into the sprinkler system so I could get him cooled down as well as myself without me looking like a big kid.

Tyson didn't like the sprinklers but afterward I allowed him to run free in one of the fields at the park where there were no people or cars. He loved it and is very obedient so he came right back when I told him to.

I think I will do a bit of strength training in about an hour then will spend the rest of the evening relaxing. It's been a good day and I am finding myself more at ease and not worrying about outcomes that I have no control over.
Keeping positive for sure.

Hi gals.
Dogs to the groomer today and we are all tired from that!
I find it incredible all the long term relationships on this team. Very good, and inspiring.
The heat you folks are experiencing makes me glad I live where I do.
We had lighting bolts and thunder last evening and through the night. Those are both rare west of the Cascades and only happens once every couple years. The dogs were frightened and one cat hid in the tub.
Still have lots to do for this move and hopefully getting some help tomorrow if the guy coming seems decent.
Glad to hear you are all active and happy.

Morning all.
Trying to finish up the late flyers. Being late is one of the draw backs to listening to your body and perhaps rearranging ones' priorities. I recall (not so fondly) when I used to be rushing here and there, always pushing to get things done. Life is more relaxing now, at least at this time. In my mind I've come to realize that delivering flyers by a certain time is not really as all important as completing brain surgery. Yes, it is a job and I always do my best, but I'm not going to beat myself up if I am a little late. I like the fact that I'm being easier on myself.
Heading to someone's cottage for Sat and Sun so likely won't be around. Have a lovely weekend.

Good morning!! Started the day with a 3 mile run in the soupy air, followed by a total body workout with bands and kettlebells. After i get off work we are headed to Mammoth Cave for the weekend. We're taking our mountain bikes and hitting the trails, and, of course we are going to explore some caves. This morning my husband told me that my shorts look like "old lady short." Seriously, how old does he think I am???

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

The heat index is going to be in the 100's today with the humidity. Actual temperatures in the mid 90's so need to get moving early. GS is home from college and coming over for a visit this afternoon. Have a great weekend. Life is good.

Joy I've had a longish walk every day this week and yes it feels great to be back in the groove!
Glad to see you got some yard time in. I'll be out there this morning for an hour, some of the earth has become compacted and needs digging over
Jeri I can't imagine you in a greasy spoon place LOL
May shame you could not get your flyers done - I love watching lightening storms....as long as I'm inside LOL
Susan sounds the perfect why to spend your anniversary.For me though I'd HAVE to eat out, we do it so seldom now.

Still behind in delivering my flyers but was a busy day nonetheless. Managed to work indoors much of the day and avoided the intense heat. Lots of destruction from last evening's storm. Huge tree branches have come down and some properties experienced damage to the roofs.
One of my friends who lives on another side of the building say a beautiful rainbow last evening.
Alas, I was facing the wrong way. Rainbows . . . another demonstration of God's beauty here on earth. Good night ladies. Sleep well.

Afternoon Ladies,

hubby and I decided to grill steaks on the barbecue tonight so we picked out some nice one with some mushrooms, peppers and a spanish onion for me to braise and top the steak with.
WE also got a small strawberry cheese cake. Yes I am going to indulge today and I got a bottle of white wine as well.

Today I am going all out of my nutritional comfort zone. Of course we have baking potatoes that will go on the barbecue as well (I only eat a small half of one) as they are not my favorite food. WE have a great salad all made to go on the side and it looks like a nice dinner to me.

I ma pleased to be staying home as opposed to going buffet style (my husbands favorite) He is the one who made the final decision to stay home and I was elated. I am not one to enjoy restaurants and appreciate my back patio very much.
Today is very hot outside so not sure if we will go outside to eat our dinner or stay inside with the coolness of the air conditioning.

Jerri, you are such a fabulous athlete but not always do we find some part of the sport as interesting as the next. I like swimming very much but only for pleasure. BUT.....like you , I love running. So let that be your slice of cake. I'm sure there are biathlons that you could participate in or tri's that you can have a partner do the water race portion of the race.

Wishing everyone a fabulous day

An incredible storm blew through last evening so all the flyers are sitting here to be delivered today. It's amazing how calm it is now after watching sheets of lightening and high winds whip plants and other items clear off the balcony. I'm glad I was still safely inside when it hit.
Hope all you ladies have an active, fun filled day.

Good morning!
Susan, Happy Anniversary!!!

Thank you for all the anniversary wishes. We were headed to Waffle House last night (for those across the pond, it is a "greasy spoon" diner that serves cheap, yummy food). We ended up at Logan's Roadhouse. Their mushroom skewers are so, so yummy!!

I had a very slow swim this morning. I just cannot move myself quickly through the water. I don't get it. Very frustrating. Maybe I could if I tried harder, but I get in the water and I just want to be lazy! I don't understand that about myself. After 1000 yds, I got out, pulled on some shorts and a shirt, and ran a mile in 8:50. Every other aspect of my racing makes me want to go fast. In the water I just say, "Aaahhh, this is nice!" Phhttt...

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...
